The number 10 bus runs from the airport to Ibiza Town all year round; get off at the port rather than the bus station, unless you fancy schlepping all the way into town with your suitcase. Summer-specific bus routes from the airport also serve San Antonio, San José, Cala Nova, Es Caná and Santa Eulalia. The Ibiza Town route leaves every 15 to 20 minutes, while the San Antonio service departs once an hour.
The bus network extends across the rest of the island, connecting most of the major resorts. On the busiest routes, buses usually come every 15 minutes, while the more infrequent bus routes might only be an hourly affair.
Buses typically begin around 7am with the last routes calling time around midnight. If you miss your Cinderella curfew, never fear; after dark, the aptly named ‘Discobus Ibiza’ takes up the mantle, transporting psyched-up club-hoppers to the most distinguished dancefloors on the island for just €3 to €3.50 a pop.
If you aren’t keen on hanging around, hop into a taxi instead. If it’s July or August, however, you can expect to be twiddling your thumbs while you wait in the queue with all the other baggage-toting visitors at the airport taxi rank.
Alternatively, you could try waving down a taxi. Hail it off the street (look out for the green light) and the fare will start at €3.65; call ahead and the fare starts at €4.95. Taxis in Ibiza run on a meter and are well worth using if you are travelling as a group of three or four.
If you need one during July or August and don't want to be stranded by the roadside, phone ahead; the summer swell can cause a taxi backlog on busy nights. You might also encounter the odd driver who is reluctant to take you to remote regions because of the diminished chances of a return fare. If this happens, just try another one; it’s unlikely you’ll come across two that say no.
If you want to do a daytrip off the island, there is no better place for it than the quieter, neighbouring island of Formentera, whose silvery beaches are equal to any stretch of sand you'll find in the Caribbean. Get there via a 30-minute ferry ride from Ibiza Town. Balearia and Iscomar both run ferry services from here.
